Here comes the gifting season!
And here are the 2021 recommended shipping deadlines from Canada Post, the service that Flock of Tea Cosy uses. However the best advice is just to order and ship early.
#1. = The flock’s FREE shipping service. (FoTC ships from Toronto.)
#2. = Requires additional charges which I’ll work out if you request them in the “Note to Seller” box at check-out.
In general, if you live in a large urban centre it takes less time to receive a mailed parcel. The smaller centres have been the ones which require the outside limits of estimated delivery times. This means that Canada Post’s recommended dates below may have some wiggle room if you live in a large urban centre.
